    I'm curious why you think KoAloha "go cheap". I'd actually agree that their QC and finishing isn't on par with the other K brands but, for me, it's the sound that matters and I think it beats all the...
  2. FS: Two Kanile'a Concerts - K1-C & SUS-C (EU/Europe)

    I'm selling my two Kanile'a concert ukes in excellent condition. I fairly recently acquired two very similar ukes that have replaced these in playing order, so since these aren't getting that much...

    I've owned all three major K brand ukes. Sopranos from Kamaka and KoAloha, and two Kanile'a concerts. Currently I only own the KoAloha and Kanile'a ukes. I just never got on with the Kamaka soprano....

    I've been seeing Matt from WoU rave about Uma ukes for a few months now. Seems like these are really nice value for money regardless of which model you'd go for. I believe Uma are another Taiwanese...

    The actual import cost - or customs duty - is 3% EU-wide for guitar-style string instruments, as far as I know. The issue comes with VAT which you now have to pay for goods bought from the UK (unless...

    As some have mentioned, the S1 is a decent uke for its price. However, there are some issues with it, at least in my opinion. The major one is the sound. While it definitely has that classic soprano...

    About time, I'd say. These have been raved about so much that I'm really surprised they weren't available sooner on the old continent. Maybe they only now were able to make a deal with the...

    Very nice, congrats! I started that thread discussing these Flight Anniversary models because I like Flight as a company so much. Glad to see someone here getting one of these beauties. I have to...

    On the previous page I was speculating whether it was Alaskan yellow cedar so it seems I was right, it is indeed Cupressus nootkatensis. I dont know if that makes it a cypress rather than cedar but I...

    UAS can be a wonderful thing if your budget allows for it. Mine fortunately did, and now after over a dozen ukes mine seems to be cured. But of course I'm still constantly looking for that one that...

    Err... I don't mean to be rude or anything but why would you tighten the tuners so tight that they lock in place?

    Corey and Kalei from the Ukulele Site also run aNueNue USA who stock more of their models. That being said, I don't really get why they even stock a few models on the Ukulele Site at all...

    Highly disagree. I've played and owned all of the three K brand ukes. I still have two Kanile'as and one KoAloha but I would definitely sell them before my two aNueNue Bird ukes, such is their...

    Saw this one at World of Ukes, and when I heard Matt play it I thought these should fly off the shelves considering the prevalence of the tenor scale. It's not for me but I'm glad to see Kiwaya...

    A few people have dismissed the slotted headstock but I'll give you an alternate opinion. I have two Kanile'a ukes with a normal headstock and regular tuners. Both are, of course, great instruments...

    It's not a species of wood, mind. It's just a portion of the wood where there's some coloration from the sap of the wood, usually paler in colour than the rest of the wood. Also, usually it's a much...

    Certainly true. It's a very unique sound, even if it's quite balanced and not so much in your face. The different sizes and shapes sound different enough but still recognizable.

    I still have the stock strings, i.e., Worth Browns. Didn't feel any need to change them as they sound good and I use those on some of my other ukes already. Maybe I'll try something different when...

    I was really surprised when the nut came off my Pono baritone. Seems they don't glue them on, at least not on their larger scale ukes. Not an issue as I believe it's pretty standard on classical...

    Kamaka strings are indeed very similar do D'addario black nylons. Wouldn't be surprised at all if they are the same. The gauges are mostly similar but on the D'Addario tenor set the C string is a...

    It is a bit weird that Cocobolo set their ukes up with such high action. Before the pineapple concert, I also bought a long neck soprano from them (which I've since sold) and that came with slightly...

    Sometimes even the smallest things can make a huge difference. I'm somewhat of a perfectionist myself when it comes to ukes. I'm not that bothered by tuners but rather things like decoration or...
